The Digitally Ready project has worked with a number of students in a variety of ways: students as partners in digital projects with academics, students as researchers, students feeding in their stories to inform work on the project and students undertaking work directly for the project.
- Students as researchers
- Students’ Stories with Placements.
- Students as partners. Art, Simon Hyslop, Sam Holton, Tee Nadan, Katerina Lazidou, Conor and Ashley
- Students as Learners: Thomas Whitlock, Conor Haugh, Torin Clark
This has linked in with the University’s agenda for student engagement, and at the moment the university is funding a new scheme called Partnerships in Learning and Teaching (PLANT), which supports student-led initiatives. There are currently two pilots that have been showcased at the T&L showcase event in May 2013:
1. ‘Student-led Working Groups’. Dr Eileen Hyder, Institute of Education with Hannah Crawford, Lauren Yearsley and Megan Penn (BA Education)
2. ‘Student-led Post-Part 1 Module Design’. Professor Jane Setter, English Language and Applied Linguistics and Hannah Field (BA English Language).
